Welcome to Game Over, Cancer!

It's time to tell cancer that it's Game Over!


Game Over, Cancer! is Atlantic Canada's largest console gaming fundraiser! We raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society through many video game related events every year. This year we have teamed up with Frag for Cancer, and our other generous sponsors, to bring the event to a completely new level and raise even more money for cancer research. Come out, play some awesome games, and raise money for a great cause.

Hope to see you all there!

We have a date locked in and we’re excited to say that our event is going to be on May 12th this year! So, that being said we are reaching out to the community to see if anyone is interested in volunteering this year! We made up a Google Form for you to fill out if you’re interested in helping out this year so be sure to let us know as soon as possible!
